Providing a comprehensive overview of sociolinguistic methods and areas of
investigation, this engaging and practical text covers every issue of
major concern in the field. Made up of a series of short essays written by
renowned international experts and presented in thematic groups, key
topics discussed include:

language, sex and gender
language and ideology
language and education
language and ethnicity
pidgins and creoles.

With a substantial A-Z glossary of key terms and concepts, directions for
further study, and detailed cross-referencing with links to the glossary,
The Routledge Companion to Sociolinguistics is both an essential
broad-based introduction for those new to the field, and a highly useful
reference for established researchers in the area.
